#LoveYourLakes why?

The Lake District is known for its stunning mountains, fresh air and clean Lakes but we need your help to keep it that way.

The Problem

The Lake District has been welcoming visitors back after Covid-19 lockdown restrictions eased which is fantastic news for all those enjoying this spectacular place. However, the sheer volume of visitors is having a huge impact on the wildlife, landscapes and cultural heritage.
